Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

A new survey has named making a cup of tea as the first thing people do when they move into their new proper-tea in Nottinghamshire.

The result comes ahead of National Tea Day on Saturday 21st April, where people across the country unite to drink their favourite brews, whether that be a classic English Breakfast or something more exotic.

30% of residents in Nottinghamshire voted for a good cuppa as their motivation for moving day and said it was always the go-to when there is a big day of unpacking and making a house a home ahead of them.

The question ‘after unpacking your essentials, what’s the first thing you would do when moving into a new home?’ revealed some other great answers from local residents, including opening a bottle of wine or champagne (9%) and setting up the TV (5%) as well.

Jan Ruston, Sales Director at Barratt Homes North Midlands, said:

“Moving home is undoubtedly a busy time and we’re not surprised that residents in the area say putting the kettle on is the first thing they do in their new home as this is a great way to unwind. One of our top moving tips for people is to prepare an essentials box that they can have handy on the day which includes spare change, teabags and coffee and of course your kettle.”
